Chris Paul Admits Clippers Can't Afford To Keep Eric Bledsoe

Bledsoe_Eric_lac_20101108.jpg

Eric Bledsoe had 15 points and six rebounds in just 18 minutes on Saturday when the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 1. The 23-year-old guard shot seven of seven overall and helped the Clippers pull away in the fourth quarter.

Chris Paul is a free agent at season's end but is sounding more and more positive about re-signing with the Clippers. Even so, Paul knows the Clippers will have a difficult time keeping Bledsoe long-term -- much less past this season.

"There’s no way he can be here next year because we probably won’t have enough money to pay him," Paul said.

Bledoe has one season left on his contract.

"He should be a starting point guard in this league next year," Paul said of Bledsoe.

Magic Interested In Trading For Eric Bledsoe

Eric+Bledsoe+Los+Angeles+Clippers+v+Denv

The Orlando Magic are considering Trey Burke with the No. 2 overall pick, but sources say they are not sold on him with that high of a pick and could instead target Eric Bledsoe via tarde.

The Magic would be willing to trade Arron Afflalo for Bledsoe and the expiring contract of Caron Butler.

Afflalo would give the Los Angeles Clippers a more traditional shooting guard to pair with Paul in the backcourt.

With the No. 2 pick, the Magic could then target Victor Oladipo or Ben McLemore.

Afflalo for Bledsoe? Bledsoe is good, but Afflalo is a better player than him. I don't see Bledsoe's "star ceiling". He struggled when given a starting role for the Clippers, and I feel his ceiling would be around 15 PPG and 7 AST. It's good to get younger, but Afflalo is already a decent young piece with good defensive skills.

Caron and Eric Bledsoe Trade For Arron Afflalo on Draft Day?

Eric+Bledsoe+Sprite+Slam+Dunk+Contest+20

By Scott Schroeder on Jun 25 2013, 11:23a

The Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Clippers are discussing a draft-day deal that, according to SportsCity's Mark Heisler, would send Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler to Orlando for Arron Afflalo along with possibly Andrew Nicholson and, potentially, a future protected first-round pick.

Bledsoe, Chris Paul's primary backup, has been rumored to possibly be trade bait as long as the Clippers are able to convince Paul to re-sign with the team rather than heading somewhere else during free agency. Many believe that the Clippers moved a lot closer to doing just that with the trade for Doc Rivers, too, so it makes sense that more details of this trade are coming about.

Heisler also indicated in his report that the Clippers are searching for a stretch four to play alongside Paul, lending some credence to a HoopsWorld report from Steve Kyler that says Orlando may also have to package Nicholson with Afflalo to make the Clippers deal work. Kyler also indicates that a future protected first-round pick could shift from Orlando to Los Angeles, but that doesn't seem as likely.

I think that's too much for Afflalo. Why do they wanna' lose that much depth & quality and only return one player instead and in that Afflalo? He's good/solid, but for those two guys, I don't agree, but it's the Clippers. They'll do as they please.
